Here at CollegeCandy, we've sort of been obsessed with sequins lately. And why shouldn't we be? Sequins are fun, glam, and, depending on what you style them with, you can rock them day or night. And while designer sequined clothing can get pretty expensive, these pieces are all under $20!
I just love purple clothing and accessories for fall. The deeper and jewel-toned shade you see in stores this time of year are flattering on everyone, and you feel instantly more sophisticated when you wear it (it is the color of royalty, after all).
Fashion is all about recycling trends (which is why I kick myself when I think about all those leggings I got rid of in the '90s ). One decade that made a strong reappearance during the Fall/Winter 2010 runway shows was the 1950s. With the overwhelming popularity of Man Med, this really comes as no surprise
One of my favorite places to shop before school is J.Crew. Everything about it is sophisticated, fresh and fabulous. But my only issue with the store is that all that sophistication doesn't come cheap. Sometimes I'll walk in, pick up a cute skinny belt for my new pencil skirt (from Marshalls...), look at the price tag and try not to strangle myself with it.
Polka dots were all over the runways for spring, and really, how can you not feel more peppy when you're rockin' the dots? There's just something about polka dots that are fun, flirty and innocent. And there are plenty of options out there to let you have your fun without looking like Minnie Mouse at a house party.
Every fashionista knows Etsy.com is an online goldmine. Not only is everything one-of-a-kind unique, handcrafted by independent designers, but it is my personal go-to website for cutting edge accessories and unexpected finds.
I get it. With winter carrying on for another 6 weeks your life really does feel like Groundhog Day since you wear the same thing day after day...after day: jeans and a black top, or sometimes, if you’re feeling a bit crazy, jeans and white one. After the novelty of a cute winter ‘drobe wore off (like the 2nd week of negative temps and slushy snow), it’s hard to put any effort into looking presentable and unique.
This week's Budget Stylista goes out to every girl like me who's trekked in sloshy snow to her favorite shop and couldn't stop herself from loading up on the spring styles. No more waiting 6 long, cold months to sport your new goods; I will show you how to wear them now without catching frostbite and then again once the snow (and your body) thaws out.
While the cardigan can be associated with our favorite childhood neighbour, Mr. Rogers, the cardigan is no longer just for old men. A cardigan is easily the most versatile piece of clothing you can own. Chicer than a hoody, the cardigan goes with everything, be it with jeans or over a dress.
Lace tights can break up the monotony of a solid-colored outfit and add a feminine touch to your look. They look chic with dresses, shorts, skirts, and boots. Here are three things to keep in mind when styling lace tights:
We all have that friend who can wear the same dress over and over and over again, but each time it somehow looks new. Or different. Or cooler. "I wish I could do that," you think as you stare at your dress and think that by wearing different shoes you will somehow achieve a whole new look.
I have officially decided my heaven will be the inside of a JCrew store…. with a scantily clad, Abercrombie model serving me mojitos. I'll be surrounded by ruffled necklines, belted cashmere pullovers, and embellished tees. And of course I will be wearing the Glitter Pocket Cardigan.
I don't watch Gossip Girl (gasp, shock, horror - I know.) But I do follow GG fashion. It's cute, it's fashion forward... and it's so expensive I think my entire college tuition could be paid off in one of Blair's Chanel ensembles. But regardless of price tag, I want it.
